Quiz the twentieth: Timestamped (Part one)

Usually just a note to tell the audience when and where they are (though they can also give weather reports), on-screen timestamps are a handy device in every filmmaker’s toolbox. But do the following names and dates make identifying the movies they appear in any easier?

    The most frustrating of all. This time, it’s complete guess work.
    01) Return of the Living Dead
    02) Some Like It Hot
    04) Journey to the Center of the Earth
    09) Vanishing Point
    14) The Amityville Horror
    15) Black Hawk Down
    22) Friday the 13th
    24) Psycho

      You mean frustrating in a good way though, right?

      Almost all of your “complete guesses” were bang on. Only one was cold (that’s a hint).

    Thanks, some might say I’m living it. Many of these frames are amusing even if I don’t recognize them. “1858 — two years before the civil war.” Well, duh. “France 1483” strikes me as funny for some reason — maybe the stone lettering. “The West — 1867.” Yep, that looks like “the west.” Good choices, for aesthetic reasons, quite aside from having to guess what they are.
